Ferguson joins the lead at the halfway stage in Foshan

Jack Singh Brar retained his position on top of the Foshan Open leaderboard but now shares the lead on 11 under par with Ewen Ferguson, Victor Perez and Callum Tarren at the halfway stage.

Singh Brar was playing in one of the first groups of the day at Foshan Golf Club and set the target at 11 under par with a two under second round, before quickly being joined by Ferguson and Perez, who shot eight under and seven under, respectively.

David Law and Mark Flindt Haastrup threatened to pull alongside the group on 11 under — although they had to settle into a tie for fifth on ten under. Tarren would eventually get there, signing for a four under par 68 to join the pacesetters.

Ferguson tied for the low round of the day with Sean Crocker and Ben Evans and afterwards the Scot was delighted with his day’s work.

“It was a really good round,” he said. “I played the back nine first and had a couple of bogeys but I really got going on the front nine.

“There’s no better feeling in golf than feeling like you’re playing well and that’s how I felt on that front nine. I was holing putts and it felt really good.

“I actually felt quite nervous standing over that birdie putt on the last but I managed to hole it and now I’m looking forward to the weekend.”
